This is serious Pinot Gris from celebrated Hawkes Bay winemakers Warren Gibson and Lorraine Leheney. Long considered one of Hawkes Bay's finest aromatic wines, this dry, fulsome Gris is loved by the restaurant trade nationwide and has been designed to come alive with food.
This delightful wine enjoyed a near perfect growing season in 2020 and regional pear and citrus flavours shine through this wine from start to finish. Some barrel work adds further texture and body, but this classic release is all about those clean fruit flavours and fresh, lingering acidity. Enjoy in its youth or over the coming 3-4 years. Highly recommended for fans of dry Pinot Gris.
The winery writes "Aromas of floral, fruit and musk coupled with a rich, textural and full palate, important characters for Pinot Gris, building from great fruit quality and attention to balance during winemaking. The wine is dry, the weight and flavour of the fruit carries the palate."
